Mayor In Vilnius, Lithuania, Runs Over Car In Tank To Prove Parking Point
Have you ever been to Lithuania? It's fucking mental.
It's considered extremely unlucky to greet someone on their doorstep. Furthermore, according to locals, sitting at the corner of the table will prevent your luck of marriage for seven years. Pretty much anything other than breathing could curse your very existence.
I told you it was mental, but this is very funny and a therapeutic kind of mental. A local man's car got ran over by a tank because it was parked illegally blocking a cycle lane. And the driver? Only the bloody mayor of the capital city of Lithuania, Vilnius.
The owner of the car came outside to find his Merc was nothing more than a crumpled mess on the back of a lorry about to be towed away.

"That's what will happen if you park your car illegally," Mayor Arturas Zuokas is seen saying to the camera moments after demolishing the local's motor.
The stunt was filmed for a popular Swedish TV show 99 Things You Should Do Before You Die.
For Zuokas, who was very proud of the cycling scheme that he set up in the city, it was about proving a point.
Carless, we can only imagine that the poor lad had no other option than to buy a bike.
Lithuania, I salute you!
